right direction Abolishing the 10 per cent levy will benefit sugar mills by about Rs 2700 crore This would help them to clear a part of the cane arrearswhich touched Rs12203 crore on February 28the maximum being in Uttar Pradesh (Rs 6693 crore) Alsoabolishing the monthly release system for non-levy sugar in the market will give them the flexibility to take economically rational decisionshopefully improving their competitiveness Where do we go from here Unfortunatelynot far enough The reason is as follows: a good policy should be judged by whether it can promote the growth of the sectorwhile ensuring its economic and environmental sustainability in an open economy frameworkand making sure that different stakeholders in that sector get their due For growth to catapultthe basic requirement in a market economy is that different economic actors should have full freedom to buy and sell their products to whomsoever it makes economic sense While the abolition of the levy and the monthly release system does extend that freedom to the sugar industrydo sugarcane farmers have similar freedom to sell their cane to anyone who can offer a higher price Not really For this to happenthe policy of reservation of the cane area and the minimum distance between sugar mills needs to go Mills dont want thisas they say it will create cut-throat competition and hit them below the belt But is it not the process of creative destruction that promotes efficiency and growth Furtherthe controls on molassesrelated to movement out of the stateas well as quota and prices for the potable liquor industryneed to go to make the sugar sector more profitable The current policy complex of controls on molassesin factsubsidises the potable liquor industry at the cost of sugar mills and cane farmers Howeverthe key to economic sustainability and growth of this sector depends upon the pricing of cane It is well known that the state advised prices (SAP) in some states are not in sync with any economic rationalitydoing more harm than good to the economic sustainability of the sector This has often led to large cane arrearsas is the case this year And ifnext seasonSAPs go up further and sugar prices remain subdued or even go downthere could be a disaster in sustaining the sugar industry And if the sugar industry becomes unviablefor whom will the cane be grown So the two main stakeholdersfarmers and millersneed to realise they have to work together to find a satisfactory principle of pricing cane Unfortunatelythere is a big deficit of trustand the state governments have not been able to bridge that trust gap Thats why the Rangarajan Committeeas well as the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP)had recommended in their respective reports a switch to the revenue-sharing principlewhere cane pricing is 70 per cent of the value of sugar and its first-stage by-products Since the recovery ratio and pricing of sugar and by-products vary from state to statethe value of these will be differentand so will the pricing of canewhich can be worked out for each sugarcane zone The CACPs calculations (cacpdacnetnicin/RPP/Sugarcane-2013-14pdf) show that farmers will get a better dealon averageunder this formula than has been the case in the last eight years Unless an agreement is reached on the cane-pricing frontthis sector cannot fly much higherand its flight path will remain jerky and risky Lastbut not leastis the issue of environmental sustainability Given the drought in Maharashtra and Karnataka this year and with climate changethe probability of its intensity and frequency increasing there is nothing in the policy that can ensure the rational use of water The CACPs analysis shows that one kilogram of sugar produced in Maharashtra needs 2000 litres of waterwhile the same sugar in Uttar Pradesh/ Bihar needs only 1000 litres of water The cost of water in UP/ Bihar is typically one-third of that in Maharashtra Thereforeit is time to think about maximising water productivityalong with land productivityand switch policy gears accordingly to promote cane in areas where Nature has endowed us with water and that is eastern UP and Biharmore than Maharashtra and Karnataka Only if the northern states learn to price cane in sync with the value of sugar and its by-productsand western states learn to put cane on drip irrigationcan we take this sector to a higher growth trajectoryone that is efficient and sustainableboth economically and environmentally The writer is chairman of the Commission for Agricultural

half-hearted effort to display the sensibilities of a small town India One finds familiar elements of a Karan Johar film – bright use of colours dance and song sequences and Alia Bhatt It seems makers wanted to use the small town as the crutch for moving forward a story The movie’s visual appeal can’t be denied but we keep our fingers crossed and hope the story is not just skin-deep Having said
